    57 and feel better than I have for the last 15 years. Having a 39 year old wife helps I guess.

    Wait a second only the 1-10 year olds are less represented than me! Do I qualify for a special rate as a minority??

    I looked at the poll results and realized that not only am I in another category than my original answer, I am well along in that category.

    Man, I really do need to get a life....:duh
